Hero: Fighters Club – KOG shuts down action game in South Korea

Originally known as Fighters Club, developer KOG abruptly announced the closure of action game, Hero. There is no official notice, just a simple pop-up when arriving on both KOG and Nexon’s Hero websites (Nexon was co-publishing). KOG is apparently focused on developing AIMA (another action game with different theme) and Ultimate Race, while maintaining Elsword and Grand Chase.

Hero closure announcement

Hero was supposedly to launch in North America several years back, with a teaser website ready, but it never happened. China powerhouse, ChangYou, signed the game back in 2013, but has yet to even begin Closed Beta. The only version left is the Taiwan server, currently published by Garena.
